    Hi Everyone!

    I'm new to the forum and want to say "HI!". My problem is this: My computer was just fine until yesterday when I go into IE6 the font size has changed - everything that should be small is now regular size. Sites show up correctly on other computers - just not mine. I am currently running on Windows 98. I've scanned for viruses and nothing has shown up. Just all the pages I look at in IE6 comes out looking odd because of the font size problem. I know as a default my pages should read in Times New Roman, but currently look like arial/verdana? Is there a style sheet that might have been altered somehow? Or is there something I can do? Or could it be spyware?

    I'm at a loss, one minute the computer was fine and functioning and now it can't read fonts correctly on the Internet?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! :)

    Hi, and welcome to the TSG forum :) (y)

    if you have a wheel mouse - try holding the control key and move the wheel - the font size should change otherwise as MFDnSC says...

    also check you still have the timers roman font on PC
